If asked this question by anybody in the law society, I would suggest the following question in reply:

"Before attempting to answer your question Sir, I would like to ask you for a clearer definition of the words you use in that question.
"How many light bulbs...."
In my opinion, Daffodil bulbs could not reasonably be described as 'heavy' but there are many other bulbs which are LIGHTER - for example crocus bulbs. We have, of course, already made the assumption that the entity attempting to do the 'changing' is a human being. To a daddy-long-legs even a snowdrop bulb could be considered an impossibly heavy load.
As Black's Law Dictionary appears to have no definition of the word 'bulb' then I fear any answer I may give would be based purely on my understandings of the words you have used in your question. Perhaps you would like a short reccess in order to discuss with your colleagues before representing the question in a clearer form?"
"Come to the edge, he said. They said: We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said. They came. He pushed them and they flew.” (G.Apollinaire)
I do not offer legal advice, I offer common sense suggestions based on shared knowledge.
